Abstract Lipoprotein oxidation has been implicated in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. However, the physio-logically relevant pathways mediating oxidative dam-age have not yet been identified. Three potential mech-anisms are tyrosyl radical, hydroxyl radical, and redox active metal ions. Tyrosyl radical forms o,o*-dityrosine cross-links in proteins. The highly reactive hydroxyl radical oxidizes phenylalanine residues to o-tyrosine and m-tyrosine. Metal ions oxidize low density lipopro-tein (LDL) by poorly understood pathways. To explore the involvement of tyrosyl radical, hydroxyl radical, and metal ions in atherosclerosis, we developed a highly sensitive and quantitative method for measuring levels of o,o*-dityrosine, o-tyrosine, andm-tyrosine in proteins, lipoproteins, and tissue, using stable isotope dilution
